  • The warehouse fulfils the highest criteria of energy efficiency and sustainability.

Both companies signed an agreement in August 2019 for the turnkey construction of a new logistics warehouse of 7,349 sqm with LEED Gold Certification on the plot 34.1 of the ZAL Port (Prat) of 13,328 sqm that would respond to the growth needs that Transmec is experimenting for the past few years.

The delivery of this new warehouse is part of all the new construction projects that CILSA is developing at the moment and that add a new surface area in the ZAL Port of more than 270,000 sqm of logistics, configuring a Logistics Park with more than 920,000 sqm of first level logistics warehouses once they have been completed.

The new warehouse is equipped with the most modern technology for logistics activity, and its construction has followed the strictest criteria for energy efficiency and sustainability dictated by the LEED GOLD of the US Green Building Council. The office block is adapted to allow full access for the disabled.

The warehouse has a free height under the girder of the installation with 11.00 m free in the storage area, having made the building envelope using insulated prefabricated sandwich panel and deck built in situ.

The plot is equipped with 45 parking spaces for light vehicles, 32 spaces for light vehicles reserved for the fleet and 2 parking spaces for motorcycles. As equipment, 21 loading docks with automatic sectional doors and exterior shelters. The fire protection installation, made with ESFR sprinklers according to NFPA, and the smoke removal system guarantee a medium risk level 5.

An integrated building management system has been implemented for the control that manages artificial lighting using dimmable low consumption LEDs and natural lighting that exceeds 5% of the surface free of skylights. In addition, photovoltaic panels have been installed on the roof that will produce energy to achieve a peak self-consumption of 14 kw / h.

This new warehouse responds to the current and future growth of Transmec de Bortoli, which is based on its ability to offer a complete range of logistics, multimodal transport and distribution services for industrial, service and retail companies that operate in our country.
